Rudy Trebels, CEO of Wedgewood Investment Group, LLC, was captured in this photo while attending the Tasting of Trelato Wines event on May 4, 2018, held at the North Shore Country Club in Glenview, Illinois.
The event was a fundraiser for Boys Hope Girls Hope (BHGH) Illinois. Trebels, who serves on the board of BHGH, and his wife Lee Trebels were joined for the winetasting by several close friends including Larry and Dee Van Someren, Rich and Peggy Hart, Judi Gorman, and Randy Thrall. All are present in the released photograph.
Rudy Trebels has served for many years on the Governing Board of the Illinois BHGH chapter which helps academically capable and motivated children in need to meet their full potential by providing value-centered, family-like homes and education through college.
Rudy and his wife Lee are past recipients of the prestigious "Heart of Gold Award", one of the most coveted humanitarian awards in the Chicago metropolitan area, awarded each year by Boys Hope Girls Hope of Illinois to an elite selection of donors. The award honored Lee and Rudy for years of extraordinary leadership and contributions to the organization’s charity work, fundraising, event management, and mentorship that have substantially advanced the Boys Hope Girls Hope mission.
Said Trebels: “This powerful organization was founded in 1977 by a remarkable Jesuit priest, Father Paul Sheridan, SJ. For over 40 years, Boys Hope Girls Hope has dramatically improved the futures of thousands of at-risk children in 15 U.S. cities and four foreign countries. Many of these children had been abused and neglected before finding BHGH; almost all come from poor or dangerous neighborhoods. The residential communities they join at Boys Hope Girls Hope supports them financially and emotionally during their school, through college and beyond. It works true miracles in their lives and in the lives of their families.”
